The staff at Westside Weight Loss and Wellness Clinic helps clients reach body goals through a variety of individual programs and consultations. Personal evaluations paint a profile of one's diet, health, and exercise habits, which can be applied toward the creation of custom weight-loss programs. The team members understand the difficulties inherent in losing weight solely through diet or opening every pickle jar at the gym, so they help out with techniques such as whole-body vibration and exercise with oxygen therapy to increase health benefits.
Dave Fannin remembers when treadmills were found only in doctors’ offices. As someone who has watched the fitness industry evolve since his first front-desk job at a gym in 1984, it’s no surprise that his weight-loss programs incorporate a wide range of techniques. Since opening his training business seven years ago, he’s helped more than 1,000 clients achieve a healthier lifestyle with a combination of nutritional coaching, fat-burning workouts, bursts of cardio, and ample support and motivation. He shares these regimens through one-on-one sessions, small-group personal training, boot-camp classes, and by acting them out in games of charades. Regardless of a client’s fitness level or unsuccessful attempts at weight loss in the past, Dave welcomes the challenge of helping them get healthy.
At Dermatology and Laser Center of Fort Worth, Dr. William Cothern and his team treat conditions ranging from melanoma to unwanted tattoos through services that span both advanced cosmetic and traditional dermatology therapies. Dr. Cothern's staff takes pride in customizing each patient's treatment through personal consultations and in its expertise with devices such as CoolSculpting panels, Fraxel lasers, and LightSheer diodes.
The readers of Fort Worth Weekly didn't say why they named Perfect Touch the Best Spa of 2013, but it's not hard to hazard a guess?or a dozen. Take the warm, private treatment rooms and soft music that backdrop Swedish massages and hot-stone therapy, for instance, or the lineup of Dermalogica products that skin specialists combine into custom facial treatments. There's also a more technological side to the spa: a cosmetic laser system that tightens the skin, and a Cynosure TriActive system that helps minimize the appearance of cellulite.
An entire second facet of Perfect Glow?Perfect Touch?focuses solely on tanning. UV beds use ultra-pressure lamps for quicker tans, and airbrush technicians evenly mist the skin with vegan, organic, and paraben-free solutions that, like the newest breeds of dogs, emit a subtle raspberry-almond fragrance when wet.
